At the same time, the environmental and health impacts of mining on surrounding communities have been major concerns to governments, the general public and stakeholder organizations and individuals. Mining area residents living environment satisfaction has a close correlation with mining area residents’ actual needs. In order to rationally evaluate living environment satisfaction situation on mining area residents, the measure index system were constructed and an attribute mathematical evaluation model was set up. The weights of the indexes were determined by the AHP, and coal mining area residents living environment satisfaction was evaluated by setting the confidence rule according to the attribute measure values of each indicator and multiple indicators. A practical case examines this method’s validity. The evaluation results indicated that the attribute mathematical model is an effective method for mining area residents living environment satisfaction evaluation, which provides a relatively scientific and rational evaluation tools for solving such problems.
